About us

Start with a Friend

We want to support refugees arriving in Germany by bringing them together with locals. Locals can help to make a difference for them with both their experience in everyday life and their commitment.

Besides that we wish to create an environment in which two people can exchange and learn from one another. Ideally this would lead to friendships but at least partnerships or connections that help building up a network that helps refugees starting a life in Germany.

 Herzlichen Dank für deine Spende für mehr Miteinander! 

Dank euch kann Start with a Friend weiterhin wachsen und noch mehr Begegnungen zwischen Einwander*innen und Locals schaffen. Die Spenden werden für unsere Arbeit und unsere Communities verwendet. Seit Ende 2014 haben wir an unseren 20 Standorten bisher über 5000 Tandems vermittelt. 

2019 führen wir unser Fellowship-Programm fort - 25 Fellows verstärken die ehrenamtlichen Teams und stiften noch mehr Freundschaften. Denn: „Wo Freundschaft ist, ist Leben.“ 

Viele Grüße vom #teamswaf
